The National Road Safety Authority (NRSA) says it will soon install cameras on highways to capture the speed of vehicles.
This, according to the Authority, is to help reduce carnage on our roads.
This was revealed by the Acting Director-General of the Authority, David Osafo Adonteng on the sidelines of the commissioning of the first digital speed signal on Friday.
According to him, drivers are not complying with the existing speed limits prescribed by law, which is 100 kilometres per hour maximum on the motorway and 50 kilometres per hour in a settlement, hence the need for the camera to put them in check.
“If you take every 100 crashes, 60 of them will be as a result of speeding,” he added.
Explaining how the newly introduced speed signal operates, he said that “What it means is that the signs as we see are solar powered, another sign, the changing sign tells an approaching vehicle your speed as against the speed limit on that particular stretch.
“When your speed is within the lawful speed limit, the figures would reflect in green. When your speed is above the speed limit, then it will change to red.”
